Hello, buttercups! Sorry to be away for so long. We’ve been in moving jail (buried under moving boxes and DIY projects), but we’re excited to get the new place in tip-top shape. When we moved in, the kitchen cabinets were pretty terrible — old, dated and brown. And since our goal is to turn our pied-a-terre into a little jewel box, we decided to paint the cabinets white! It has made all the difference. Now, instead of painting the inside of the cabinet doors white too, we’re looking for a fun temporary wallpaper to cover them in.
Here are some stylish wallpaper patterns that are tickling my fancy…

Also called renter’s wallpaper, peel-and-stick wallpaper, or easy change wallpaper, temporary wallpaper goes on just like those fun wall decals (re: like giant stickers). What a fun option for renters, don’t you think? You simply peel and stick these on. There’s no water and paste and mess. Though Jordan of Oh Happy Day warns it nearly cost her a divorce…

This is Jordan’s gorgeous entryway. I would totally go with this pattern if the color wasn’t offwhite (I fear it will look dirty against white cabinets), though maybe I can get some to wallpaper a wall elsewhere…

Should I be scared? How hard could it be to put it on the backs of cabinets? (Famous last words…) It’s not like you have to line it up perfectly like you do if you’re doing an entire wall or room. It’s worth a shot, don’t you think?

Have you ever used temporary wallpaper?
I’m dying over those apples!
Paris, anyone? You can even have custom paper made using your wedding photo!
And there’s chalkboard wallpaper too. Kind of perfect in a kitchen or dining room…
